A loan helped to buy manure and fertiliser and to hire farm hands.
Jose Wilder's story
José, 23, lives with his wife and their children in a house of their own, made of rustic materials, in the district of Santo Tomás, Cutervo province, Cajamarca region, in the northern mountain ranges of Peru. This is a peaceful area whose inhabitants are farmers, cattle-rearers, and traders. José has been growing coffee for three years and people in the area think very highly of him on both a personal and professional level. He will use the loan to buy manure and fertiliser to tend properly to his crops, and to hire farm hands for the harvest. José thus hopes to have better-quality coffee to offer his customers. This will increase his earnings and, as a result, improve his family's standard of living.
